It must be a strange wave that engulfed my girlfriends yesterday to lash out full force of sarcasm and of course witty German phrases about people they can’t stand. We all have one of these days when a jerk really clouds your day whether intentionally or unintentionally, knowingly or unknowingly. It’s one of these days when you’re so ‘stinksauer'(upset) with this person or ‘genervt'(irritated, someone got on your nerves) from this someone and wished that his skeletons in the closet will run out to haunt him. And when you have a group of three women ‘discussing’ the misdeeds of these pricks, you can expect a train of unsexy, maybe even a bit rude but totally amusing German words that seems to be lodged in my head till today, hopefully longer, that I may have some mirth over the weekend using them ‘unintentionally’.
- der Angeber: Poser
- grosse Klappe, nix dahinter: someone who’s bragging but in fact is not capable of doing anything at all.
- der Kotzbrocken: Kotz comes from vomit, der Brocken means boulder. Together it means that someone is a total jerk.
- Arschgeige: used to describe one who is a total jerk, mean, arrogant and full of himself. e.g. Was fuer eine Arschgeige?
- das Grossmaul: someone who’s loud-mouth.
- die Nervensaege: pain in the neck.
